Boobs and Warbirds: the Art of Romain Hugault

If Romain's at a loose end and has a penchant for all things airborne and silvery, he could always do a few images of these bad boys...

This has the look of a series based on the flying exploits of Antoine de Saint-Exupery - the air mail across Africa; the reconnaissance flight to Arras. Might be wrong but it would be a magnificent series if it was.

It will be a book about the late Antoine de Saint-Exupery, with some stand-alone drawings/illustrations by Romain Hugault. In short, not a graphic novel.
Author: the French aviation journalist Bernard Chabbert. Releasedate: October 2020.

Very likely ! Mermoz, a.k.a "Le Grand", was the pilot who made all the girls weak at the knees while Saint Ex, by all account a mediocre pilot but a great writer, was more the cerebral type. In the above drawing by Hugault there is one with both Mermoz and Saint Exupéry.


Mermoz was at the same time good looking, very athletic and was known for his unbelievable feats of courage while Saint Ex was mostly known for regularly crashing the aircraft he flew....

It is thought that Saint-Ex made Ann Lindberg go weak in the knees even though he had both a wife and a mistress at the time.

Is the process literally just sketch the shape and then ink the lines in freehand? No artists curves or the like?
There are some demo vids on YouTube about this subject, but I am not sure, I'll have to check.
Meanwhile some impressions with artist Romain Hugault:

E-reading for free:
WW-II aviation graphic novel "The Grand Duke" (aka "The Nightowl") ~ Vol. 1 "The Night Witches", by Romain Hugault and Yann: in French language, awesome drawings though!.)
Volume 1 from a trilogy; 48 pages; enjoy!

In short, an album with boobs...

...and warbirds:

LGD1 pagXXXbig.jpg



Scenario (brief):
Winter 1943. In the hell of the Eastern front, the all-powerful Luftwaffe has a total supremacy of the Sovjet sky and pours a deluge of fire on the routed Russian troops. Faced with the Nazi steamroller, the Soviet air force has little but the heroism of its pilots to oppose in an attempt to slow down its inexorable advance. The attractive blond Lilya is one of these "Night Witches", charged with harassing the enemy, flying on slow and upgraded bi-planes, condemned in advance, but firmly resolved to make their sacrifice pay dearly! And there is the anti-Nazi and rebellious ace-pilot Wulf with his night-owl...
